Bible Genealogy – Adam to Jesus – This is a complete genealogy of the Bible showing all the descendants of Adam. There is at least one Bible reference for each person so that you can read about the person in context with his/her place in the Bible stories. It includes additional information about the leading figures in the Bible and an appendix of interesting, but little known things in the Bible pertaining to genealogy. You might find some of these things surprising. For example, did you know that of the five prominent women named in Jesus’ genealogy, three were not Jewish, one was a prostitute, one tricked her father-in-law into sleeping with her (she later married him) and one had an adulterous relationship with a King (surely you know who that one was.).. There is also a complete name index.
Go to the web site at: Bible Genealogy – Adam to Jesus.There you will find the online genealogy of the Bible, which is the basis for the manuscript. You will also find complete ordering information. The manuscript is offered as an electronic document in Acrobat PDF format. You can view it on your computer screen, download it to your computer, or print it out.
Marshall Genealogy Manuscript
This manuscript contains over 14,000 names of the descendants of William Marshall of Calvert County, Maryland. William Marshall was the second great grandfather of Martin Marshall who migrated to Stokes County, North Carolina. Martin is buried six miles north of Winston Salem, North Carolina at the end of Dusty Trail, off Baux Mountain Road.
I must emphasize that the connection between Martin Marshall and William Marshall has not been proved with official public documents. However, the best information we have points in that direction. I include that connection in the manuscript in hopes that someone can use the information to eventually prove the connection. I also included information about certain families that are related to the Marshalls. Those families include the Spargers, Marions, Wrays, Badgetts, Freys. and others.The manuscript is just under 1,000 pages long and includes a 200 page index of every name in the manuscript. It is available in electronic .PDF format only. I can send it to you as an attachment to an email message.

MARRIAGES OF SURRY COUNTY, NC Cross Index 1869 — 1899: compiled by Lorna W. Barrett, 1992; 137 pages $25.00
This publication is a cross-index having the brides and grooms listed together alphabetically, with the name of the spouse given after the name of the indexed party. This is an index only and was compiled from the microfilmed copy. Some marriage licenses did not survive. This index may prove marriages that aren’t documented elsewhere.
MARRIAGES OF SURRY COUNTY, NC 1869 — 1899: compiled by Lorna W. Barrett, 1998; 512 pages $45.00
This publication of Surry County marriages is as complete a record as could be obtained from the actual marriage licenses. The earliest licenses give only the names of the bride and groom, the date of marriage, and who married them. In only a few instances is a parent listed. After the change in the license form, much more information is available. Most entries include the name of the groom, where he resided, his age, names of parents, whether they are living or deceased, where they lived if outside Surry County, location of the marriage, date of marriage and by whom, names of witnesses, and license number. The same information is included for the bride. The index includes both the bride and groom.
VOTER REGISTRATION OF CARROLL COUNTY, VA 1902 — 1903: compiled by Virginia Gentry Phillips and Richard Walter Phillips; 142 pages $20.00
Compiled from the original book in the Clerk’s Office in Hillsville, Carroll County, Virginia, this record supplies alphabetically the names of 3,800 voters with date of birth, age, occupation, district of residence, number of years in the state, county, and precinct, and whether he was exempt from the poll tax. A map supplies the location of the five districts of the county. The compilation provides a great deal more information than simply location.
DEATH RECORDS OF CARROLL COUNTY, VA 1912 — 1917: compiled by Virginia Gentry Phillips and Richard Walter Phillips: 135 pages $20.00
Death records were recorded in individual Virginia counties from 1853 — 1896 and began again in 1912. These records were recorded in the five districts of the county and show for each decedent the following: name, sex, race, date and place of birth and death, age, cause of death, name and birthplace of parents, name of informant, and place of burial. There are over 3,900 persons named in the index.
JOSEPH WINSTON, HIS ENTRY BOOK, SURRY COUNTY, NC LAND ENTRIES 1778 — 1781: compiled by Agnes M. Wells, Virginia G. Phillips, and Carol J. Leonard 1987; 212 pages $30.00
Joseph Winston’s entry book contains the land entries made in Surry County from 1778 — 1781. It is important to mention here that not all persons making land entries actually ever received deeds to the land. A claim may have already been made on the land or in other cases, persons entering claims moved on. The land entry may be the only source to show that certain persons were ever in the county. The land entry will also tell if the land grant is for the Revolutionary War Soldier or is he or she was from another county or state. The description may also contain the name of the previous occupant or owner of the land, the location of grist mills, iron works, ferries, churches, roads, etc.
“GRANDFATHER CLAUSE” VOTER REGISTRATION BOOK 1902-1908 SURRY COUNTY, NC: compiled by Clayton C. and Agnes M. Wells, 1990; 232 pages $35.00
The “Grandfather Clause” is a very important source for those researching families in the 1800’s. Men registering to vote in 1902, 1904, 1906, and 1908 must have voted on or prior to January 1, 1867, or name an ancestor who did and where they voted. This information provides the state and sometimes the country from which their ancestors came. Other information includes the name of voter, age, township, and date of registration. This book includes data compiled from the original registration book found in the Surry County courthouse, and the Secretary of State’s copy on microfilm in the NC State Archives, Raleigh, NC. A full name index is included.
SURRY COUNTY, NC COURT OF PLEAS AND QUARTER SESSIONS: compiled by Iris M. Harvey and Agnes M. Wells; multiple volumes as listed following the description;
A review of the Ps & Qs in the May, 1991 issue of the ROWAN COUNTY REGISTER states “The compilers (who are sisters) have provided a first-rate publication…This book is a must for genealogical research in the 1700’s”. The continued publication of the P’s & Q’s of Surry County (formed 1771 from Rowan County) provides specific information to researchers that otherwise is available only in a word-by-word reading of the un-indexed, handwritten original records. Because more names appear in the minutes than in any other record grouping, they are an essential source. Included is an explanation of terms used in the original record, and a complete index, cross-referenced for alternate spellings of names. The county court dealt with a wide range of matters, leaving behind records that have become a very valuable resource to the researcher, including wills and estates (court records may be the only surviving record of a death or estate), coroner’s inquests that may include names of orphans and widows, guardians, bastardy, deeds, matters dealing with public selection of juries which may provide identification of like names by naming the fathers, children that were bound or indentured and to whom they were bound, and a list of persons who affirmed rather than swearing, a fine indication of Quaker persuasion…just to name a few.

ABSTRACTS OF BIRTHS, DEATHS, MARRIAGES AND OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM MOUNT AIRY, NC NEWSPAPERS 1872 — 1895: compiled by Agnes M. Wells, Virginia G. Phillips, and Carol J. Leonard, 1987; 278 pages $30.00
This publication is a very important source for those researching families in the late 1800’s since no birth and death records were kept in North Carolina until 1913. This book principally includes items from newspapers published in Mount Airy, NC during the time period of 1872 -1895, but also contains a miscellaneous collection of items from other North Carolina newspapers. Included are abstracts of births, deaths, marriages, and other items of genealogical and historical interest not only in Surry County and surrounding areas but also throughout the continental United States. It concentrates mainly on the North Carolina counties of Surry, Yadkin, Stokes, Wilkes, Forsyth, Rockingham, Guilford, Allegheny, and Ashe and the Virginia counties of Grayson, Carroll, Patrick, Henry, and Floyd. There is a tremendous amount of information about people moving into and out of Surry County, and many notices of births, deaths, and marriages pertaining to Surry County natives and others throughout the continental United States.
SURRY COUNTY, NC OVERSEER OF ROADS 1807 — 1833: compiled by Agnes M. Wells and Carol L. Snow, 1991; 148 pages $30.00
During the period of 1807 — 1833, caring for roads was community duty. All eligible able-bodied people in the community attended to the stretches of road on which they lived. Road overseers were appointed annually by the County Court, which met four times each year (February, May, August, and November). Overseers’ appointments often give details concerning the bounds of their responsibilities. In many instances, however, the appointment simply says “in the room of a previous overseer.
Records for the appointment of road overseer contain much information. Not only are the names of overseer and work hands given, but these records also frequently refer to water courses, fords, ferries, bridges, grist mills, orchards, mountains, cabins, churches, etc.
This publication contains the names of many people who may not appear in any other Surry County, NC record during the period 1807 — 1833. The federal censuses enumerated every ten years contain only the names of heads of households and do not include names of all persons living in the household until 1850. Also, the tax list for Surry County, NC indicates only the names of property owners in the county. Therefore, this publication may be the only source indicating that a person was living in Surry County during the period 1807 — 1833. Includes a full name index and a place name index.
SURRY COUNTY, NC “LOST TAXES”: compiled by Iris M. Harvey
The clerk’s book of taxes for the years 1790 — 1800 was lost. There are original lists for these years in the NC Archives in Raleigh, but most are faded, torn, and did not survive in their entirety. These taxes were microfilmed by the Mormon Church in the early years before the book was lost. They were placed in the film labeled “deed book A — C”. When looking at deed book C, it was discovered that the tax books for 1790 — 1800 were placed there. We were lucky to have found a microfilmed copy of these early years for Surry County. The following volumes include a complete name index.
“LOST TAX LISTS” VOLUME I 1790 -1795 233 pages $25.00
“LOST TAX LISTS” VOLUME II 1795 – 1800 216 pages $25.00
SURRY COUNTY, NC TAX LISTS: compiled by Iris M. Harvey
The tax lists below were compiled from the original records in the NC Archives in Raleigh, NC. All available information is included. The value of tax lists prior to 1850 is that they supply the names of persons who were not heads of households, who did not own real property, and therefore do not appear on land records, jury lists, etc. The taxable area includes part of present-day Yadkin County. Each volume includes the following data: acreage with location showing the waterway and neighboring landowners, town lots, store owners, value of land, number of white polls, black polls, and studs. A complete name index accompanies each volume.

STOKES COUNTY, NC TAX LISTS: compiled by Iris M. Harvey
The tax lists prior to 1850 are valuable because a poll tax was levied. They named persons who did not own land and were not heads of household, whose names therefore would not appear on other lists such as land records and jury lists. They are also an aid in tracing persons who were passing through to another area or state and only stayed in North Carolina for a short time. In some cases fathers and sons are named. The tax lists below were taken from microfilm and then proofed to the clerk’s books and the original loose records. There were sometimes names on the original loose lists not copied in the book by the clerk. These compilations combine information from both the books and the original lists. Each publication includes a complete name index.
